AUG 1 – AUG 20 | EARTH WITNESSING

Locations: X̱áywá7esks | Creekside Park, X̱epx̱páy̓em | Hadden Park, Lek’lekí | CRAB Park, Smem̓chús/Smamḵw’ch | David Lam Park, X̱í7nam̓ut | New Brighton Park and Trout Lake Park

In partnership with Alex Mah, Senaqwila Wyss and Adriana Contreras

 

Earth Witnessing is a collection of mixed audio and visual works designed for folks to engage with their senses in local parks. With featured visual artists complimenting the scores, local flora and fauna mixed with rich histories intermingling with the many possibilities for tomorrow will lead you to re-envisioning what can exist in a space. These audio and text forms will guide us to open our creative selves and conscientiously tune into our world. Highlighting Indigenous language, Earth Witnessing allows folks to learn the original name for the land they walk on. In a time where our social hibernation kept us from our larger environment, returning to our senses seems like a herculean task, but it doesn’t have to be. There’s worlds between you and I, with Earth Witnessing journeying us safely from our paths to yours.
